You Should See Me in a Crown was an emotional roller coaster that had me laughing out loud at times but also crying and then laughing more and crying again. But it wasn't sad crying. It was moments when things worked out so beautifully that I got overwhelmed.
The voice was fantastic. The characters were well developed, vivid, and dynamic. I loved the romance in it, but also the parts of the story that focused on friendship.
Another thing I really appreciated was the anxiety rep.
Buy this book and read it! You won't regret it.
I really liked Liz Lighty. She didn't always make the best decisions but I always understood why and how these decisions were made. She was an extremely believable teenage character. I could easily see her come to life in the world we live in. Her portrayal was flawed, realistic, and every ounce the teenagers we all once were.
The romance was sweet, cute, and filled me with delight. I often found myself smiling whenever Lighty interacted with Amanda. I loved how she became a bumbling mess on the inside and how her crush on Amanda consumed her. Ah, to be a teenager in love again. I also really liked the consent message in this book. Not just with kissing but hugging. There was a scene a female hugged Lighty and she very politely said "I just want you to know that I don't like hugging." And the girl immediately replied "Sorry! I forgot, I should have asked first." This is a great message we should all partake in.
Overall, I loved this book. Like I said, it was a quick and easy read. It was filled with drama, angst, but love and fluff win out in the end. 10 out of 10 I recommend.
I swooned, cheered, happy cried and fell madly in love with Liz Lighty and her crown. This queer prom romance was everything I've always wanted in a love story. The HEA was bright, sparkly and hopeful. I cannot wait for more books from Leah Johnson!
